Hi guys, a few years ago GW asked me to do a test sculpt for them of an empire soldier. Last week I found it and dusted it off :)

wow thats pretty nice :) I love the monkey.

Are test sculpts to test ideas or sculptors to see if they fit in?

Thanks! This was just to find out if I could match the style of their range

I've made a few resin casts for myself and friends. If you want one PM me.

That's awesome! Much better than the current Empire plastics...

Nah, starting salary offered was less than what I made stocking shelves at a hardware store so relocating and all that didn't seem worth it.

You should open an online store and keep making new models.

I don't know what the tech is getting to be like, but every now and then I'm tempted to buy a good 3d printer and start making some models, maybe sell some online (I can't sculpt for crap IRL, but I have years of background with computer modelling). Is it possible to scan a model like this and start printing them yourself?

That looks just fantastic and so full of character. I would love to see more empire stuff in this direction. Seems he is from a southlands expedition with Marco Colombo^^

I was able to get a copy of this mini from Sprue, and it's fantastic! Incredibly detailed and professionally cast.

If it can sculpt like that then it should think about making some specialty models for sale in general and earn some money for the talents it possesses.

I adore its creepy prose and its tenacity in using it!

Mine is going to make an excellent unit champion for troops from Marienburg. It's an excellent piece of work

That would go great with the other Estalian models.
